, arbitrary cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. they'd devastate priorities like education, energy, and medical research. they would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. that's why democrats, republicans, business leaders, and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in washington as the sequester, are a really bad idea. now, some in this congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training, medicare and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. yes, the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. and those of us who care deeply about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms -- otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children, and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future generations. but we can't ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the

growth. and conflict with iran could push up energy prices. erika miller, "n.b.r.," new york. >> susie: joining us now with more on what to expect from president obama's state of the union address, david gordon, head of research at the eurasia group in washington d.c. >> so if you heard from our report, david, it's all about the economy. that's the big interest for most americans. what can the president propose tomorrow that will get the economy moving without some kind of big stimulus plan? >> so i think that the president's going to try to do a couple of things. first he's going to call on others to help him. first es he going to call on the congress to do two things. one, avoid the sequester, avoid the job cuts that will come from the sequester. and come to a balanced program on putting budget issues on the sidelines for the rest of this year. two, pass immigration reform so people have confidence, migrant workers have confidence, or security improves, so es's going to ask the congress. second he's going call on business whose balance sheets are in very good shape. he's going to say

.s. as the u.s. tries to navigate between clean energy and economic growth, as well as energy dependence versus drilling, the president's upcoming decision is increasingly seen as a crucial test by all sides. >> thousands of people marched on the national mall in washington yesterday, braving a cold winter wind to take part in what organizers called the biggest climate rally in u.s. history. they called for president obama to reject the proposed keystone excel oil pipeline. >> the reason i came here today was because i feel like president obama... i feel like if we make a statement with our numbers and our passion that he'll get the message. >> woodruff: the keystone project is designed to move crude oil hundreds of thousands of barrels a day that would be extracted from the oil sands of northern alberta in western canada. the oil would be transported across several u.s. states to refinerees and ports in texas. the company behind the 1700-mile pipeline, trans-canada, has altered the route to largely by-pass a water deposit in nebraska. but protest organizers insisted the pipeline still threaten

to achieve real growth until our economy. one of the best ways to encourage growth is through our energy industry. god also blessed america with abundant coal and natural gas. instead of wasting more money on companies let's open up federal land for exploration. we can grow our energy industry, it will make us energy independent and it will help bring administering back from places like china. simplifying our tax code will also help the middle class because it will make it easier for smaller businesses to hire and grow. we agree with the president, we should lowerer our corporate tax rate so companies will bring their money and jobs back here from overseas. we can also help grow the economy if we have a legal immigration system that allows us to attack the best and brightest. -- attract the best and the brightest. first, we must follow through on the broken promises of the past to secure our borders and enforce our laws. helping the middle class grow also requires an education system that brings the skills that jobs entail. we need to incentivize local schools and career training. we nee

decision for the president. does he side with energy independence? >> this certainly should not be a tough decision. this really is close to a no-brainer. he talked about it over and over again in his state of the union speech. he always talks about union jobs. this is infrastructure. this is union jobs. the great thing about it if it does not cost a penny to the taxpayers because it is all privately financed. even if you agree with the promise that global warming is a big problem and this oil will contribute, you know what, if it is not consumed here, it will be consumed somewhere else. it is not like it will go away. i do not think that the environmentalists have really thought this through. i just think they do not want it. dagen: this oil will go to china. it will be refined there with much looser environmental standards on refineries in that nation. not to make fun of our northern neighbors, but do you really want to make this country mad? canada has made it clear that it could retaliate against the u.s. do we need to be worried about this? >> that is a great question. they are part o
royalties from drilling on federal land for the energy security trust. how is it possible that they just don't know if they're collecting the right amount or not? >> exactly. that's a long-standing problem they have had at the department of interior. we put them on the high-risk list a number of years ago for three reasons. one was the reorganization that they were undergoing in terms of mineral management. the second was the royalties issue, exactly what you're touching on. the third was making sure they had the right people, petroleum engineers and other specialists in place that could actually run the organization. this time because of progress they made just on the reorganization part, we were able to narrow the high-risk issue but the problems remain on the, both the revenue side and on the people management side. they really need to make sure that they have the right people in place that are, that are petroleum engineers and other allied professions that can oversee and work in that department. melissa: they could just be giving away oil because they have no idea what's going on. how m

care, high energy race. is that the kind of government we want to buy a? is that the government we want to put our money and? i don't think so. we've got to step back and responsibly address those. do we believe there's appropriate things for government to spend money on? absolutely. i didn't support the stimulus package of 2009 because i thought it would do what he did, which is a solo bunch of money and not get remarkable results for our economy. in fact come in at her harmed her ability to come out of the recession. one of the things they could have done had it been spent and a different way would have been to revitalize the infrastructure of our country. water, sewer, rose, huge investments. but a fraction is used for something resulting in the public goods. so there are things government ought to spend money on an infrastructure is one of them. >> david morgan with readers. i would like to know if you expect the north korean nuclear test to accelerate efforts to get a deal done on the sequester.
